Alexander Hernandez provided a shock tonight at the prelims for UFC 222 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Taking a fight against Beneil Dariush on just two weeks’ notice, it took Hernandez just 42 seconds to knock out Dariush, who entered this bout at No. 12 in the UFC lightweight rankings.
“You didn’t know me then,” Hernandez said following the victory. “But I promise you, you know me now.”
Hernandez improves to 9-1 with the victory. Dariush, meanwhile, is now winless in three straight — two losses and a draw.
